Nov 14, 2022On Monday evening, the Palestinian Health Ministry confirmed that Israeli soldiers killed, at dawn, a teenage girl in Betunia town after shooting her with a live round in the head and added that the name published before was provided by the Israeli army and is incorrect.
In a brief statement, the Health Ministry said the slain girl has been officially identified as Folla Rasmi Abdul-Aziz Masalma, 16.
It said that the slain teen would have turned 16 tomorrow, Tuesday and that she was killed after the soldiers shot her in the head.
Her family is originally from Beit Awwa town, west of the southern West Bank city of Hebron, but lives in Al-Biereh city near Ramallah.
The Health Ministry said the soldiers took the body of the slain girl and initially provided the Palestinian Civil Affairs Committee with a name of another woman who apparently had nothing to do with the incident.
An eyewitnesses said, after shooting the girl, the soldiers took her out of the car while heavily bleeding, placed her on the ground and tore her clothes, before moving her to one of their jeeps.
He added that the soldiers fired at the car three times in a short time and said that the driver was shot and went out of the car heavily bleeding and raising his hands in the air.
“He was bleeding apparently from his hand, before he stepped out of his car with his hand up in the air. The soldiers and took him to one of their jeeps,” he said, “The girl was then taken out of the car and placed on the ground. She has bleeding when the soldiers carried her but dropped her on the ground, then carried her again, and took her to one of the jeeps that was at a distance.”
“But the jeep they took her to already had the wounded young man who was detained by them, so they placed her on the ground, and then took her to another jeep that had no space, before moving her to another jeep where they placed her on its floor and drove away…. she was bleeding… I don’t think there was any more blood in her body by then…”
“They bought Shawarma and were driving away to eat it, this is how coldblooded their murder is!”, he concluded, “their blood was everywhere, including their shawarma…”
It is worth mentioning that, later on, Palestinian medics took Fulla’s body to the Ramallah governmental hospital before transferring her to Doura governmental hospital near Hebron, in preparation for funeral ceremony.
